I liked Zambri's, and if you find most food too salty then you might really like the food here. I found seasoning lacking for both the pasta and the pizza. Good crust, though, and overall pretty good service. I might return. A bit more upscale...More

This is the most authentic and delicious Italian food in Victoria. Their Caesar salad is amazing with eggs. Home made pasta and a lively atmosphere. Grab a prosecco at the bar and get a table to enjoy.
